STATE NORMAL SCHOOL AT SALEM. 



Resolves to establish a State Normal School 
in the Count)- of Essex, were passed by the Legislature, 
and received the Governor's approval, April 16, 1853. 

The Board of Education, at their meeting, held on 
Thursday, June 2, 1850, decided to locate the same in 
Salem. The city of Salem furnished the site, formerly 
occupied for the Registry of Deeds, on Summer, corner 
of Broad streets, erected thereon a brick building, two 
stories high, sixty-seven feet square, — furnished the 
same to the acceptance of the Board, and received there- 
for the sum of six thousand dollars, appropriated by the 
Legislature for this purpose. The cost of the building 
was about thirteen thousand dollars, exclusive of the site 
which was estimated at five thousand dollars. 

The building contains on the lower floor a lecture 
room and six smaller rooms for library, apparatus, recep- 
tion, &c. ; on the second floor a school room sixty-five 
by forty feet — four recitation rooms and two smaller 
rooms, one for the use of the teachers and the other 
where the books of reference are deposited. 

On Saturday, September 3, 1853, workmen began to 
remove the old building. The new edifice was dedicated 
for educational purposes. Thursday, Sept. 14, 1854, — 
Governor Washburn presiding — address by ex-Governor 
Boutwell. 



NORMAL SCHOOL. 11 

The State Normal School at Salem, is one of the four 
Schools established by the State of Massachusetts, and placed 
under the care of the Board of Education, for the purpose of 
aiding in the preparation of Teachers for the Public Schools. 
This one is intended for females only. 

A young lady to be admitted into this School must be at least 
16 years of age ; must declare it to be her intention to become 
a teacher in the Public Schools of Massachusetts ; must 
promise to remain in the School for three consecutive terms ; 
and must deposit -with the Principal a Certificate of good moral 
character from some responsible person acquainted with her. 
She must also pass a satisfactory examination in Reading, 
Spelling, Defining, Writing, Arithmetic, English Grammar and 
Geography. 

The School year is divided into two terms, together amount- 
ing to forty weeks. One of the terms begins on the second 
Wednesday of March, and the other on the second Wednesday 
of September. The former is preceded by a vacation of four 
weeks, and the latter by one of eight weeks. A class will be 
admitted at the commencement of each term, and the examina- 
tion for such admission will take place at 10 o'clock, A.M., 
on the day preceding that on which the term is to begin. No 
person will be examined at any other time except for very 
strong and peculiar reasons. 

Those who have had experience in teaching, and whose 
literary qualifications are considered satisfactory, may be ad- 
mitted for one year ; and the same right is extended to those 
who are prepared to enter advanced classes. 

To those who enter as above, no charge is made, except that 
they pay a fee of $1.50 at the beginning of each term for the 
use of books. Persons wno intend to teach in other States or 
in Private Schools may be admitted on paying a reasonable 
tuition fee. 

Board may be obtained in respectable families in the city at 
$2.50 to $3.00 per week, washing and lights not included. 



12 NORMAL SCHOOL. 

Very little other expense need be incurred, as all the reference 
books, and very nearly all the text-books are furnished by the 
State. 

This institution, in common with the others throughout the 
State, is entitled to draw from the State Treasury $1000 per 
annum, to be expanded in aiding such deserving young ladies 
as find the expense of attending the School burdensome. Each 
applicant for aid, who boards in the city, may receive from this 
fund $1.50 per week, after the first thirteen week3 of her at- 
tendance. Others for the fame time, will receive smaller sums, 
varying with the distance they are obliged to travel to reach 
the School. These rates, however, must be reduced whenever 
the number of applicants is so large a3 to require it. But this, 
as yet, is far from being the case. 

The Cours3 of Study, as at present arranged, includes : — 
Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry, Geography, Projections of the 
Sphere, Physical Geography, Astronomy, Mechanics, Hydrosta- 
tics, Pneumatics and Optics, Anatomy and Physiology ; Spell- 
ing, Reading, Etymology, Critical Study of English Authors, 
History of English Literature, English Grammar, Art of Reason- 
ing, Rhetoric and Composition, Latin, Theory and Practice of 
Teaching. In the regular course, Latin is elective ; also, to a 
certain extent, Algebra and Geometry. 

Regular instruction is also given in Vocal Music by an effi- 
cient teacher. Prof. A. Guyot is employed to lecture before 
the School on Physical Geography ; and gentlemen eminent in 
their several departments, are to be engaged as lecturers in 
other branches of Natural Science. 

For those who are willing to remain in the School a sufficient 
length of time, an extensive course, including the higher Math- 
ematics, and the Latin and Erench Languages will be arranged. 
Those young ladies who have previously graduated at High 
Schools, or similar institutions, will accomplish this course in 
less time than others, whose advantages have been more limited.
